Flame War o’ the Day: Forum Freshman Follies

Ah, kids today! Who knows what crazy japes they get up to, eh?

Well, this for starters:

WORDPRESS ADDED MY EMAIL TO SPAM!!!!!!!

  1. I use an e-mail address SPECIFICALLY and ONLY for wordpress and it is now receiving spam. If you can’t keep my email off of a spam lists, how can I trust you with other sensitive information!!!!!!!!??? I am now receiving spam from all these weird Canadian medications and viagara.

    Additionally, now I just got a domain renewal from a SPAM site to renew my domain!!! ([email redacted] says that if I don’t send them lots of money my domain is going to expire. HA!) This is ridiculous.

    You guys are a total joke and I plan to take my business elsewhere.

  2. Actually this is your doing.

    You have a custom domain. As you know, there is an upgrade called “privacy” which is available at an extra cost. You did not purchase this. Therefore, all the data you put in to register the domain, eg actual physical address, phone number, and email, IS PUBLIC.

    That is where the spammer got your email, and how they knew you had a custom domain.

  3. If you look it up here, you can see EVERYTHING http://whois.online-domain-tools.com/

    I will refrain from doxing you in the forum, but your email is WordPress at your last name dot com and the last two digits of your phone number are 29.

  4. Well that is one thing. But my PRIVATE e-mail address? They make my private e-mail public? That is a joke if it’s the case. Most websites make the person’s Name, address public. They never mentioned e-mail address. If so I was totally misinformed, again shame on them.

  5. ALL domain registrations require that information, and they make it public unless you pay extra. It’s US law, I believe.

  6. yeah. I freaking got it. Can you take it off???

    I have another domain registered via google sites and it’s not public all that information and it’s FREE. delete your previous post while I figure the hell out how to damage control this. I want my site deleted ASAP.

  7. I can’t delete my post any more than you can delete yours.

  8. It’s US law, I believe.

    Not only in the US. I think throughout Europe also.

  9. You can delete your site, but that won’t get your information back from the spammers; it will remain public until the domain expires.

  10. Hey Raincoaster delete your direct link to my information. Are you really that mean?!!!

    Well it doesn’t work like that with google sites. I’m not giving you people my other domain name, but whois doesn’t show any of that information.

  11. I cannot delete my post any more than you can.

  12. why. why the hell would you think of doing that?!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. I hate exclamation marks.

  14. BTW your domain at blogspot is not a custom domain, so you didn’t have to put in that information. If you had registered a custom domain for your blogspot blog, you would have put in that information and yes, it would be public.

    If you had stuck with http://foodmakesthefun.wordpress.com/ here, you wouldn’t have had to put in that information and the information would not have become public.

  15. What a coincidence, I hate motorcycles and old men who ride them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. Hating on a charity ride to raise money to fight cancer? I should have put your dox here.

    Were you really a freshman in 2004? Because you sound like one now.

  17. Oh goodness me, what a surprise!

    Poor Andy, I really do have to get that changed.

     

Seriously, Andy, I PROMISE to get that changed. Right after I’ve wrung every ounce of amusement out of this thread.

Backstory: I was the first person to have a custom domain on WordPress.com. The staff wanted it to be a surprise, so Andy registered it in his own name. Since that time, he’s gotten crazy flaming hatred from a number of people I’ve crossed online, probably including but not limited to the esteemed Sue Basko, Esq, and now including this twerp. Seriously, I very obviously don’t dox her and she goes apeshit. I should, but her mommy probably took her phone away by now anyway, so what’s the point?

By the way, her (custom domain-free) Google Site is ranhanstory.blogspot.ca/ if I’m not mistaken. And it looks like I’m not.

  1. Oh, I could tell from the way he was going that’s how he’d react. That’s why I specifically used the word “flounce” which he found so horrifying.

  2. Yes. It’s closed now. What part is whatever you say online remains forever do these f***wits not get? And don’t get me started on the European ‘right to be forgotten’ subject. Censorship being upheld! If you have a criminal record and have not acted to secure a pardon that’s a matter of public record, and I don’t want any interference with the public’s right to access public information.

  3. Her Wp.com blog is set to private and her Blogspot deleted now. There you go: the quality of some young women interviewed as “social media savvy” on local television.
